Turning a dumpsite into a greenfield

Do you have one of those neighbors who dumps their waste in your backyard? Very annoying, isn’t it?  What have done about it? Wire Product Limited (WPL) sustainability champions came up with a brilliant idea of turning an area that was a dumping site into a future bamboo tree mini forest. They kicked off the greenfield project by carrying out a mass cleanup on World Earth Day to help get rid of all the waste, as part of their Zero waste to landfill initiative.

The team cleaned up the entire area and ensured the waste they were collecting had been properly segregated. WPL works with innovative waste partners who collect their waste for recycling, reusing and proper disposal. They have also adopted waste segregation at the point of generation at the various places within the factory. They are sensitizing their staff on proper disposal.

‘‘We plan on planting about 76 bamboo tree seedlings at the area we cleaned today, and we will also plant 82,000 bamboo tree seedlings within the project area.’’ Says Kevin Namuye a staff and sustainability champion at WPL.

The WPL sustainability champions also fenced the green field they cleaned to prevent waste from being dumped in the area as the Bamboo tree planting has already begun.

‘‘We have a robust waste management system at our factory and work with strategic partners to mitigate our waste.’’ Added Margaret Njeri a staff and sustainability champion at WPL.

With the Zero waste to landfill by 2025 target, WPL is on a journey to mitigate waste at the factory and beyond through best practices and innovative initiatives.
